Jolle Greenleaf

30 Nov 2016

Hailed as a "golden soprano" and called "a major force in the New York early music scene" by the New York Times, Jolle Greenleaf is one of the leading voices in the field of early music. She is a sought-after soloist in music by renaissance, baroque, and new music composers, particularly Bach, Buxtehude, Handel, Purcell and, most notably, Claudio Monteverdi. Her performances have earned raves from the Oregonian—"[Greenleaf] sang with purity and beguiling naturalness"—and the New York Times, who called her "an exciting soprano soloist...beautifully accurate and stylish." As artistic director of early music ensemble TENET, Greenleaf creates many diverse programs, as well as directs and sings in performances of repertoire spanning the middle ages to the present day. TENET made its Metropolitan Museum of Art debut in 2012 and is scheduled to make its Carnegie/Zankel Hall debut in 2014. TENET's programming has been lauded by the *New York Times *as "smart, varied and not entirely early."
